I’ve been getting lots of questions from my Facebook friends and Twitter followers about some statuses and tweets I’ve had over the past 2 days. To put worries to rest, here is what happened…
On Thursday night, after a wonderful blogger event that I will write a stellar review about on a later date, I got into a car accident on Route 93 North in Medford, MA. Details aside, no one was seriously injured.
After a chest x-ray and a cervical spine cat scan, I found out I have a chest contusion (with no bruising, thankfully), severe whiplash and a minor concussion. (The airbag didn’t go off, resulting in my chest and my head hitting the steering wheel at full force). Aside from a constant headache, some obscured memories and a bit of confusion, I am healthy and well.
While I am still a bit jumbled about the experience, I want to thank my friends and family for the kind words, phone calls, e-mails, tweets and comments. It is always comforting to know that people care about me and it is one of the best medicines I could ask for.
Coming up soon, I’ll have a fabulous review from the blogger dinner I attended, a second review of a blogger brunch I will be going to tomorrow (thanks to my parents for offering to drive me…) and a recap of my first few days of grad school. I mean, who doesn’t want to start their Master’s program with a concussion?
Oh — there will also be a lovely little giveaway I hope you will all fight over!
